GUEST COMMENTARY: Iraq’s disintegration expands Iran’s influence, challenges U.S.

GUEST COMMENTARY: U.S. must learn from old foes in Africa, Asia

Considerable news has been generated by U. S. military strikes in two African countries, while less commentary is resulting from the passing of a major military leader in Asia, but the two stories are related. Regarding war and revolution, fundamental lessons are enduring.

BRIAN HOWEY: Why I view a Lugar defeat with great reluctance

Last Monday, a steel girder rose 1,271 feet above New York City and was affixed to the Freedom Tower, making it the tallest building in the metropolis. It happened on a clear, crisp day, not unlike Sept. 11, 2001, when terrorists attacked the twin towers, each a small city in and of themselv…

GUEST COMMENTARY: Bin Laden should have been captured, put on trial

President Barack Obama "double-tapped" Osama bin Laden. That's spy slang for executing with two shots -- normally to the head, but in bin Laden's case we were told it was first the chest and then the head. Maybe that was the best solution, since you don't have to be concerned with denying ha…
